She is a musician, actress, filmmaker, tree-hugger and animal-lover. A vegetarian, her work often contains themes of conservation, animal rights, and the rights of children. Lori unapologetically takes pride in creatively bending and reshaping the rules of writing when it suits her style.

A horror fan since small, she roamed graveyards as a kid and conducted funerals for dead birds, squirrels, insects and spiders.

My Review of Bloodpath By Lori R. Lopez:
This fast-paced, imaginative piece of work was a thrill to read from the first page to the very last. I literally was compelled to keep reading, until the story was told.
Lori keeps the reader enthralled and even shocked at times with her tight, descriptive writing style.
This tale is a must-read, especially for the quizzical minds that have always wondered about the old legends of the Sasquatch.

Review by: Parents' Little Black Book Reviews on May 04, 2012 :
Bloodpath by Lori R. Lopez explores the premise of the Bigfoot. How far would a tribe of legendary creatures go to hide their existence?

Boyd Applegate thinks he is okay to drive. After a few too many drinks he decides to drive to his home in a remote area with little traffic. What could be the worst that would happen? He could hit a tree?

But this time the worst has happened and Boyd has hit something. It may have felt like a tree, but it wasn't. Left for dead, Boyd has to find out what really happened. Which proves to be a mistake that causes a bloodbath.

At about 12 pages, this is a harrowing tale of murder and mayhem. Not for the faint of heart but certainly for those who like their horror bloody and bloodthirsty.

Review by: JENNIFER THOMAS on April 12, 2012 :
Lori R. Lopez had done it again!!!! She has blown my mind with another amazing story. Bloodpath takes you through the mystery of the legendary bigfoot and beyond. All Boyd Applegate wanted to do was have some drinks with his buddies to make himself feel better and then drive home. Well the first part of his plan works wonderfully and then everything happens. What is that he just hit? How drunk is he to think that it couldn't be human? This short suspenseful horrific mystery is a wonderful read. And as always Lori is able to help you envision the entire story through her unique and amazing use of words. You can feel the fear of the humans and the anger of the beasts and the sadness for the loss of the lives that are lost in this tale, but I have to say that I have never thought of a path of blood being beautiful until I read them described in this story.
